Fuel reduction through lubrication

Lubricants from Fuchs

Published:  28 January, 2016

Lubricant manufacturer FUCHS has released a new engine oil which it claims can reduce fuel consumption by around 4%.

The company has added the TITAN GT1 PRO V SAE 0W-20 to its product range, which has now been approved by Volvo for use in the manufacturer's latest high-tech engines.The oil boasts FUCHS new XTL-Technology® with extreme fuel-economy characteristics and reduced CO² emissions.

When tested, fuel consumption was found to decrease by up to 3.9%. The oil can also remain in the engine for a longer period before it needs to be drained, saving the motorist money and providing environmental benefits. The low viscosity oil has excellent cold starting behaviour, very fast oil circulation and outstanding performance reserves.

Rosemary Mellor, FUCHS UK automotive product manager, comments: "Today's highly stressed systems and engines with stop/start technology put high demand on lubrication. The recent approval demonstrates that it is perfect to be used in the latest Volvo engines and will ensure that the vehicle's warranty is not put at risk by using the incorrect oil."
